Intel discloses 2011 processor details

New chip features enhanced version of Turbo Boost technology

By CBR Staff Writer

Intel has unveiled new design features of the company’s 2011 2nd Generation Intel Core processor family at the Intel Developer Forum.

Intel said that its new Sandy Bridge chips will be based on the company’s new "visibly smart" micro-architecture at 32-nanometer process technology with second- generation high-k metal gate transistors.

The processor family will include a new "ring" architecture that allows the built-in processor graphics engine to share resources with the processor’s core to increase a device’s computing and graphics performance.

The 2nd Generation Intel Core processor also includes an enhanced version of Turbo Boost technology, which automatically shifts or reallocates processor cores and processor graphics resources to accelerate performance.

Intel Architecture Group executive vice president and general manager Dadi Perlmutter said that their upcoming 2nd Generation Core processor family represents the biggest advance in computing performance and capabilities over any previous generation.

"In addition to offering these features inside Intel-based laptops, we plan to scale these advances across our server data centre and embedded computing product portfolio," Perlmutter said.

The 2011 chips also come with Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX), which provides the ability to better manage, rearrange and sort data.

The company expects laptops and PCs that are powered by the 2nd Generation Intel Core processor family to be available early next year.
